I do this pattern and have done since finishing induction early 2013. It can be a tad frustrating as you go through periods where you seem to have a good weigh-in on Saturdays, only to have regained by Monday - but...that's an illusion. This pattern does work even when it doesn't seem as if it is (in my experience, anyway).

Good Luck!
